Why purchase this 2019 50 Franc 1 oz Silver RWF Rwanda African Ounce Shoebill?
This Silver Shoebill is the latest edition in the Rwanda Wildlife Series that dates back to 2008. Since then, the collection has enamored collectors who are interested in the wildlife of the African continent, as well as those looking beyond releases from the world's more prolific government mints. This coin was struck in Munich, Germany at the Mayer Mint on a one ounce planchet of .999 fine silver.
Striking Shoebill Design
For most coin series with changing designs each year, the reverse varies while the obverse remains constant. However, with this coin, it is the obverse that is annually altered . Part of the design, a geographical map of Africa, is common to all issues in this series, but each year, the celebrated animal is featured in the lower left quadrant. In this case, it is a pair of Shoebills that are depicted at different angles. This perspective gives the collector the opportunity to examine the birds more closely. "AFRICAN OUNCE," "2019," and "1 OZ FINE SILVER 999" are inscribed along the rim.
The reverse design, the official Seal of Rwanda, consists of a cogwheel on which tribal devices are mounted. Above and below that image are ribbons that bear inscriptions in Kinyarwanda. The inscription on the ribbon above the cogwheel means "Republic of Rwanda," while the one on the ribbon below it translates to "Unity, Work, Patriotism." The latter is the national motto. Other inscriptions on this face include the coin's face value of 50 Francs.
